Kid Rock Answers “Loaded Questions”

by

A few questions, if you please. Did Kid Rock ever sing “Bad, Bad, LeRoy Brown”? Did Kid Rock ever dress up as the Statue of Liberty? Is Kid Rock a shoes fiend? Is Kid Rock down with Garth Brooks? A few answers: Maybe, could be, perhaps, and let me get back to you. Actually the Detroit dawg, who’s a fan of Too $hort and lots of old school hip hop, jumps to the center of these subjects in the video above. Fans can learn something new about their boy by watching his interview with CMT for a few minutes.

Fans can also learn something about him by checking out his VH1: Storytellers performance, premiering on Thanksgiving Day, November 27. That’s where he’ll be performing his biggest songs like and explaining how they came about. Keep your eyes open for more updates and a sneak clip from the show. Check more interviews and lots of great videos in our Kid Rock Box Set.

You know that his entire catalog has recently become available for download exclusively on Rhapsody, right?

Beyonce Videos: Hot and Thoughtful

by

Lil Wayne rhymes “handcuffs” with “pants off” in his f*ck the police opus “Mrs Officer.” He’s not the first guy who’s been hot for a lady in uniform. Bet there’s lots of that lust in the air now that the world is getting a glimpse of Beyonce‘s new “If I Was a Boy” – B looks sweet in her NYPD blues. It’s a message clip, full of implications about stereotyped relationship roles and the friction that’s created when jealousy dominates a domestic scene. It’s also only one of the two videos that Beyonce has dropped today. The other is a dance party dealio, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).”

Here’s one perspective on the two-sided move by the R&B princess and the alter-egos she likes to express.

Here’s a full playlist of the new videos, as well as classic clips and exclusives in Box Set.

And here’s the “Single Ladies” clip, after the jump.

New Kids Concert: Another Happy Winner

by

It’s happened again. We have another New Kids on the Block fan heading off to see their favorite group. Torrie Eddy-Morris has been loving herself some NKOTB since day one. Congrats Torrie! She’s won herself a trip for two to Las Vegas, VIP tickets to the show, a meet and greet session with the Kids, and two nights of sweet hotel accommodations.

Here’s the photo and the story she submitted to our Ultimate Fan contest.

“The craziest thing I have done for something connected to NKOTB was my friend Renee and I would collect soda cans (worth 10 cents in Michigan) to get the items our parents would buy us. The hat I am wearing in the picture was paid for by “pop can” money!”

The Ultimate Fan contest continues. Send us your stories and photos for a chance to win a shot at seeing the guys onstage this fall.

Alter Bridge’s Celebrity Rehab Theme

If you believe music is all about emotional power, then you’re likely a fan of Alter Bridge‘s new video for “Watch Over You.” It’s one of the those guardian angel songs, and it packs a punch.

Clips from the series, which features Dr. Drew working with an array of patients that includes Rodney King, Tawny Kitaen, and Jeff Conway, are spliced into the footage of the band in action. Check out the video above.

Honors 2008: Great Onstage Moments

by

Slick Rick is known as “The Ruler,” and as he sat in his Hip Hop Honors box seat watching his pals burn through few of his rhymes, he looked rather regal. MC Lyte was first with the salutation, “Gather ’round party goers…” It was wild from there. Busta Rhymes in the powder blue outfit with the matching eyepatch, Ghostface and Biz rolling through “La Di Da Di” and Eve throwing down about that slice of pizza in “Mona Lisa.” That’s the real deal.
